*Sophie Farah's class has been changed. An earlier version of this story incorrectly stated that she was a junior.

COLUMBIA — The Rock Bridge girls tennis team beat Jefferson City 9-0 on Wednesday at Bethel Park to win the Class 2, District 9  tournament. It was the 12th year in a row the Bruins claimed the district title.

“We had an exciting No. 2 doubles match. They were down 6-5 and then came back to win 8-6,” Rock Bridge coach Ben Loeb said by phone. “Also, Kay Ficher had a real battle … her opponent played well, but she found a way to raise her game and win.”

Senior Abby Kayser and *freshman Sophie Farah claimed the No. 2 doubles title, while Ficher, a junior, won at No. 3 singles 6-4, 6-2.

Rock Bridge (19-2) advances to sectional play where it will face the winner of the District 10 tournament at 9 a.m. Oct. 16 at Bethel Park.
